When do Pokémon Brilliant Diamond and Shining Pearl come to Pokémon Home?

Pokemon come home!

After The Pokémon Company introduced Pokémon HOME in 2020, players have been able to transfer their companions from previous games to join them in more recent entries. With another release, players are asking when they can expect this app to work with the new editions of Diamond and Pearl.

Pokémon Brilliant Diamond and Shining Pearl will receive Pokémon HOME compatibility at some point in 2022. The Pokémon Company has not yet disclosed when these games will be eligible for Pokemon transfers. Still, considering that Pokémon Legends: Arceus launches in early 2022, it's likely that they'll both receive Pokémon Home integration within the first quarter of 2022.
